Parents:  Throughout the year, your child’s teacher(s) will identify items for donation that will be appreciated.  One such item is a box of tissues for classroom use.  If you would like to donate these, please send it in with your child when requested.

This list should not be considered ‘all inclusive’.  Some additional supplies may be requested at the beginning of the year.  Please save your receipts so you can return items that may not be used based on class assignment.  Please call Student Services at 410-313-2850 if your student is in need of assistance in acquiring school supplies.  

The TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphing Calculator will be used regularly in certain 7th and 8th math classes.  Graphing calculators are an important technology used in Howard County mathematics courses beginning with pre-algebra and extending through the end of the mathematics course sequence.  Although students will be provided with a graphing calculator for use in school and have the ability to borrow one for out of school use, students are best served by having a personal calculator and becoming very familiar with how it is used to address a number of different types of mathematics problems. Students who go on to take mathematics courses in college will often be able to use the same calculator for college coursework. Parents who wish to purchase an upgraded calculator that will be suitable for both high school and college engineering classes might consider the TI-Inspire.
